Can a robotic limb help a common workplace with difficult jobs? Robotic arms always have to be functional with the appropriate parts, or else the arm is not useful at all because the arm has no use of working either without a certain part or the computer that is stored inside it. Before having the actual arm, me & my partner have to build it by making a sensor circuit for the arm & make a hand for the arm as well The arm is the thing that takes time to assemble because one wrong part in a wrong position can mess up the entire arm. When we make the sensor circuit, the flex sensors require a certain type of circuit I order for it to be functional with the robotic arm itself. By using a 3-D printer, we will be making the basic design of the …show more content…
Building a robotic arm will take a period of time because me % my partner will have to gather the right supplies & materials in order to build the robotic arm and to make it fully functional. A robotic arm is one of the most manufacturing robots of them all. A robotic arm is one of the most unique robots of all the robots themselves. If a robotic arm can be used for a car mechanic, it would make the job very easy for the common worker because now the only thing the worker has to worry about at that point is fixing the persons car to make it fully functional just like the robotic arm. In addition to the robotic arm, having this kind of technology for humans would be a great improvement on certain jobs which would make them a lot easier. A robotic limb is made up of seven certain metal segments. In order for the arm it self to be useful, their is a computer that control the robot by rotating individual step-motors that are connected to each joint. For the robotic arm to perform certain actions, the robot has to use motion sensors to make sure it moves just the right amount. Robotic arms can not function as well as it can if the computer is not connected to it or if it gives the robot commands that are to hard to …show more content…
First, you have to weld the trapezpidal (mobile) block of aluminum to the robotic hinge joint so that the ram attachment link is on the top. Then, you have to weld the upper & lower "arms" to a hinge, to form the "elbow". However, in order to create the shoulder, you have to weld a hinge to the upper end of the upper arm and to the eternal "shoulder support". These steps have to be carefully done in order for the arm to move and be fully functional. Robots can do a lot of this work more efficiently than human beings because they are so precise. No matter what happens or how long they stay active, they always drill in the exact same place, and they always tighten bolts or some other object with the same amount of force, no matter how many hours they have been working or active. To teach a robot how to do it's job, the programmer guides the arm through the motions using a hand held controller. Robotic arms are basically designed for jobs that human beings can not do by themselves. The jobs now a days sometimes have to require or sometimes may need because that is how hard the job is. Robotic arms once again can be a tremendous amount of help because robotic arms can complete risky & dangerous jobs. Robotic arms always require certain part to put together, but the parts are hard to find sometimes and plus a robotic arm always has to be functional with a
